Whether a weekend getaway, short vacation, or extended odyssey across the country on low rations and the spark of discovery, you owe it to yourself to have some fun in that new Buick or GMC Vehicle! Maybe it's time to load up the floaty-toys, swimsuits and goggles. Summer is hot, and what better way to celebrate in the East Coast Summer than with a trip to the water park? Following are three top water resorts on the east coast worth exploring with the whole family!
Kalahari Waterparks have been so successful, they've acquired three locations across the US. In Pocono, PA, their resort is an eight-story behemoth featuring a full indoor park, convention center, and hotel. Kalahari Waterparks describes their vacation destination as "full service". With a strong African theme, included in the Pocono destination are luxury spas, restaurants designed for family adventure, and vast convention centers made to round out a given business trip. The idea is to have something for everyone at the resort, and Kalahari Waterparks has done a great job of making that a reality. Cabanas, shopping, an arcade, multiple water slides, and much more await!
If you really want to wow the kids, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom of the Pocono Mountains offers two great attractions simultaneously. Yes, there's a huge, expansive water-park with slides, pools, and everything which comes with that. It's quite the water park, in fact. A ticket purchased during the normal summer season gives access to over three dozen different slides, rivers, pools, and play areas. It truly is a kingdom of water! But that's only part of the Dorney Park realm. Included in its provinces are a number of exciting roller coasters, as well as Dinosaurs Alive, an animatronic dinosaur park featuring thirty separate life-sized dinosaurs; some standing as tall as forty feet! The kids'll love it, and you might even get a squeal or two out of the wife. Walk down a wooded path as the things dinosaurs did to live and survive are theorized and explored to the wondering expressions and sounds of the young ones. But don't spend all your time with those old thunder lizards! There are eight separate roller coasters for thrill-seekers to ride, as well as ten separate thrill-rides designed to wake up the butterflies in your stomach and send them on a tour of your whole interior self. Upside-down, backwards, sideways - your kids can handle it, but will you? And all that's not to mention Planet Snoopy, fine dining, or live entertainment. It's fun for the whole family, young or old!
This is actually the biggest waterpark in Eastern Pennsylvania. It features over thirty-seven separate rides and attractions, including the new Mummy's Oasis, and Kahuna Lagoon Wave Pool. A multitude of Cabanas criss-cross the park, and FlowRider has been designed to help you learn how to surf - the kids'll love that! Meanwhile, Blue Nile Adventure River will give you a relaxing time, and the Dune Runner has the kind of crazy drops sure to get adrenaline saturated through your bloodstream. Offering day passes, group discounts, and family savings, Camelbeach is more than a local attraction, bringing in regular adventure-goers from New York and Philadelphia; making the park an interstate affair.
